I’m about to get my hair done. Should I wait?

It's totally up to you, although for best results it is highly recommended you do it after you have your hair done to avoid your strands falling out prematurely.

You will want to look your best for your selfie photos on the day you come.

How long do Sparkly Hair Extensions last?

It will last until that strand of hair falls out naturally. It can last months or a day...when you lose that hair, who can say. Shedding patterns are different for everyone!

We will show you how best to brush your hair so the strands last longer.

Sparkly Hair Extensions are attached to a single strand of hair. You can wash it, brush it, comb it, curl it, COLOR it, straighten it, blow it dry, keratin, blow out or get a haircut with it in.

Can my child or children receive Sparkly Hair Extensions ?

Sparkly Hair Extensions work best in adult hair. It doesn't last as long in our younger clients because their hair follicles are not as mature. We give this disclaimer so you don't have high expectations, but there is always an exception to the rule! Many of our clients under the age of 10 rock their Sparkly Hair for months!

While we don't have a specific age for a child to receive Sparkly Hair Extensions, there are two requirements that must be met in order to receive Sparkly Hair:

  • The child must be able to sit still in the chair by themselves for at least 15 minutes while receiving extensions.
  • Hair must be at least 10 inches (25cm) long.
How do I prepare for my appointment?

For appointments we ask that your hair is brushed of loose or weak strands and tangles, clean, DRY, and WITHOUT hairspray.

Leave in conditioners or, frizz control spray-on oils are fine.

Does it change colours with the bleach/hair dye?

After a few colours you’ll notice it’ll start to look a little dull which is normal from all the wear and tear, which is why we recommend you add the strands after your colouring session.

For your future sparkle sessions we always clean up and replace any of the Sparkly Hair strands that need a little extra TLC.

Does Sparkly Hair Extensions work for curly hair or short hair?

When fusing the original Sparkly Hair Extension it will go in straight first as we have just pulled it from the package. After washing it, it will relax and begin to mimic the hair next to it.

Hair must be at least 10 inches (25cm) long.

How do you put Sparkly Hair Extensions in? How is it attached? Or how does it work?

We join them to a single strand of your own hair using Sparkly Hair Extensions. A fusion technique that adds fabulous sparkle to your hair. There is no heat, no glue, and we guarantee no damage to your hair.

What colours do you have? What colour would look good in my hair?

We have all the colours of the rainbow (AND Rainbow)! We’d love to help you find the perfect color to reflect your inner *SPARKLE* at the time of your appointment.

Can you add Sparkly Hair Extensions to my hair if I have other types of fairy hair or tinsel in it?

I have hair extensions, will this work in my hair?

Will Sparkly Hair Extensions affect my MRI?

We have heard feedback from our clients who have kept their Sparkly Hair Extensions in for an MRI and it has not affected the results. However, we recommend that you remove them if you are having a scan of your head. While there is no metal in our product, it is reflective and we encourage you to eliminate any possibility of interfering with your scan. We understand it is an expensive test and we would recommend waiting to have the strands placed until after the procedure. Your health and safety is our top priority!
